Acne Scarring

What Is Acne Scarring?

There are 3 main types of acne scars:

 

  • Ice pick scars – small, deep holes in the surface of your skin that look like the skin has been punctured with a sharp object
  • Rolling scars – caused by bands of scar tissue that form under the skin, giving the surface of the skin a rolling and uneven appearance
  • Boxcar scars – round or oval depressions, or craters, in the skin

What causes Acne Scarring?

Any type of acne spot can lead to scarring, but it’s more common when the most serious types of spots (nodules and cysts) burst and damage nearby skin.
